    A perfect tour for both beginners and experienced drivers, this 3 hour ATV Snorkel tour from Tamarindo takes you off-road through the back trails and forest viewing native wildlife such as monkeys, iguanas, and many birds. You will drive 45 minutes to the pristine blue waters of Playa Conchal snorkel along the reef where you will see a vast variety of tropical fish, octopus, eels, and more! We pick you up from your hotel, house, or condo in Pinilla, Tamarindo, Langosta, Conchal, Grande, or Flamingo and bring you to the start point where you will be given a helmet and goggles and a 15 minute instruction lesson on how to operate the Honda semi-automatic ATVS. If you haven’t ever driven an ATV before, don’t worry! They are very easy and the crew will make sure you are comfortable driving before setting off on the tour. After everyone has been though the safety and operational orientation, everyone will begin driving off into the forest surrounding Tamarindo, heading to the first beach. Be prepared to get dirty! You will drive through the beautiful tropical forest surrounding Tamarindo where you will most likely see monkeys, iguanas and birds hanging out in the trees! After riding through the back trails with stunning views of Tamarindo Bay, you will continue to drive off road trails to secluded beaches Playa Minas and Puerto Viejo. Here you will park your ATVs right on the beach and put on your snorkel gear. If you have never snorkeled before, the guide will help you put on the gear and show you how to use it. It's easy! You will swim along the reef in pristine crystal blue water

We were sold a dream and a bag of beans! The photos and description made it seem as though this tour would be semi-private, but that was not the case. We were picked up in a van by a driver who did not readily identify himself and did not wear a mask. There were 9 or 10 guests in this van (meaning that there were no empty seats) and we were forced to squeeze all together in the vehicle. Mask wearing was not enforced and windows were kept closed for air conditioning- understandable from a temperature regulation standpoint, but concerning from a Covid standpoint.

When we got there, we were asked to sign waivers and given a quick demonstration on how to operate the vehicles. Everyone was given helmets and told to get onto an ATV. My vehicle kept stalling while idling and needed to be restarted with a ripcord. When I asked for another ATV to avoid mechanical delays or accidents, the staff made it seem like I was forfeiting my ride. I was made to take the temperamental vehicle and rode behind another guest who had an ATV with a smoky engine. There were so many of us (13 people in total including the guides) that it was difficult to see through all the dust that was being kicked up. The guides didn't give us goggles until halfway through the ride; that was after we had gotten dirt in our eyes.

The beach itself was breathtaking. I would definitely go to Playa Mina again, just not with their service. However, you should temper your expectation! The photos and description were misleading, saying that there was a reef you could see while snorkeling. This is definitely not the case. The ocean floor is composed of silt, so the water becomes cloudy very quickly and there are no corals or fish.

It's very unethical to misrepresent the product you provide and I think that customers deserve to know what to expect.

My husband and I had a great time getting to travel back dirt roads, splash through mud puddles, and see 2 secluded beaches on the way. Gustavo was helpful with the ATVs; my husband's died right after leaving, and mine stalled 2x. He made sure to come back and help us each time, so we were not stranded. It was an awesome day for snorkeling as well! I would recommend that you come ready to jump into the ocean, as you only have about 20mins at the first beach, and no time to try to find a place to change. They provide the snorkeling equipment for you. Definitely would recommend bringing your own water as well. They provide snacks and water at the end, but nothing during (you can purchase some from one of the locals).
What a great time we had! Thank you!

We loved the ATV tour with stops at the beaches! We went during rainy season so there was lots of mud to drive through and beautiful views. We stopped at two beaches, Playa Minas and Puerto Viejo. Playa Minas was so secluded and beautiful. While we weren’t there for long, it was my favorite stop of my trip. My boyfriend and I were able to swim in crystal clear water with virtually no one around. The tour was a good length, and the stops were essential to giving my hands a rest from the accelerator (semi-automatic so you have to keep your finger on the accelerator which I found kind of painful). If you’re debating doing a 2 or more than 2 hour ATV, consider one with stops, it will be way more enjoyable!

The tour offered by nature way did not meet any of our expectations. The tour guide texted and drove his ATV all the time during the tour, we where constantly going slow due to him texting and driving. Our tour guide also got agitated when we got stuck in the sand. We booked the 3 hr tour and it was close to 2 hrs not 3 like we paid for. Most of the tour did not consist of riding on the beach instead of a very long dirt road going to the beach. We rode on the beach 15 mins at most. Our guide was very unprofessionally. I would not recommend it.

This tour was our most attended tour during our wedding week. We brought 23 people. Sadly, it was also the most lackluster. This, in fact, is not really a tour. It is a ride to nowhere to see nothing. You’re on the ATVs for nearly 2 hours on what seems like a large loop - seeing the same things. The 2 secluded beaches seem to be different entrances of the same beach. No snorkel gear is provided, no instructions are given, no sites were seen. When arriving at these “secluded beaches” the staff would tell us “we’re leaving in 20 mins” and they’d go off and smoke and chat amongst themselves. Aside from saying “stop and go” the staff never communicated with us.
We have experienced many ATV tours in various countries, including Costa Rica; If you want an ATV and Snorkeling adventure, this is not the trip for you.

My husband and I were on our honeymoon and we did 2 tours with Native's Way, the turtle tour and the Albatross sailing cruise! For the ATV, Were picked up on time from our hotel from Tamarindo and taken to Brasilito (sp?) where we started our ATV trip. It was about 2.5 hours or so. Every beach we stopped at was STUNNING! We went through all these crazy fun back trails and our guide stopped when he saw a family of monkeys up in the trees. We swam a bit in very clear water and got a drink. Great way to spend the afternoon :) The sailing cuise was another great afternoon. Had all the dirnks we wanted, great food brought to us, music, and we got to snorkel a bit. The snorkeling wasn't incredible but I think you need to go to a different location for that. Overall 2 fantastic days that made our honeymoon . Thank you!!!!

My family had a blast on this trip. Gregory & Eithel were wonderful guides. The ATVs were easy to ride and lots of fun. The trip went through the jungle and ended up at two great beaches - one with a great bar to wash out the dust with a Margarita or Smoothie:).
Highly recommend this trip for something different to do and to see great scenery.

this tour is 100% focused on scuba divers on the same boat , snorkeling is not good at all at the spots they take you , not safe , zero visibility and really choppy water . We decided not to jump to the water the second session because it wasnt worthy .

Andy was great!! He took us to some awesome beach spots we probably wouldn’t have seen otherwise. The ATVs were fun and easy to use. It was pouring when we got there, but that didn’t matter, just added to the fun:)
